Good Food with Friendly, Attentive Service

We picked The Village Pub because it serves foie gras. The restaurant does not offer a tasting menu, so I was torn as to what to order. Almost everything on the menu looked good to me. They also have some off-menu items that the waiter discussed with us. To start, I ordered the foie gras... read more

The Village Pub always offers a superlative dining experience, whether for lunch or dinner. The food is top notch: fresh, seasonal, often local ingredients, with classic and inventive offerings to appeal to all appetites. The dining room is dark, chic, and classically appointed - a lovely respite from the summer heat, or a cozy place to get warm in winter.... More

We have eaten here many times over the years. Lunch is our favorite meal. Their crispy chicken salad is excellent. The wine list is extensive and the sommelier is always helpful in finding a selection that matches the budget as well as the food. The service is normally very attentive. The negatives are that the food and wines are expensive... More

Fresh California dining at its best with views of the coastal hills. A real Michelin 1 star restaurant with very well prepared food. Great cocktails and wine list, and food that will be a memorable event. Produce is very fresh from their own gardens. Desserts to die for! We have visited a least 50 times and have never been disappointed.

I love to sit at the bar area, the general dining is great, but the bar is more intimate for me, food is amazing, especially the steak frits,

If you dream you are having the best dinning experience in your life, you are in Woodside, California eating at the Village Pub. Every dish I consumed was tasty and properly prepared. The service was beyond excellent. The wait staff helped me find an outstanding bottle of Italian that was priced reasonably. You were greeted with a smile when you... More

I must have driven by the Village Pub a few thousand times over the years and somehow never managed to eat there until last night. We were there celebrating a birthday and what an excellent choice for a celebration. The dining room is lovely, the wait staff is attentive with out hovering over you. Ceres (sp?) was our wine steward... More

We've eaten here 5 times, not including my birthday party in their private room. Each time the food has been amazing. Salad greens are fresh and sweet and my recent entree, skate, was tender and flavorful. The peach crisp with ice cream was so good and the portion was large enough for 2 or 3 people to share. Even the... More

This is an amazing place, well worth the Michelin star. It's not an everyday place. It's a wonderful place for special evenings for the family or an important business dinner. The food and service are amazing, as is the wine list, but expect an invigorating bill for the evening.
